Expedition What3Words

Steve Root climbs the Kitchens.Bedrooms.Bathrooms mountain

What an adventure! In August 2022 I set out on a 7 day solo expedition to climb a mountain in Corsica because it happened to contain the What3Words location ///kitchens.bedrooms.bathrooms

I raised money for 3 charities along the way, with 100% of donations split between MapAction, Oasis and Mankind. At the time of writing, donations are £2,312 and you can still donate at this page

I also managed to travel during the worst storm Corsica has seen. In the words of Christophe Morel, head of the forecasting department at Météo-France, “Winds of over 200 km/h were recorded, which is quite exceptional for a storm. We can say that we were a little surprised by these numbers, which have never been observed before.

I was luckier than many others in the region but I did break down in an area with no phone signal, power or way of calling for assistance. It set the scene for quite an adventure! You can watch the full playlist from planning through to the final climb on our youtube channel here

A Big Plug for…

A few of our suppliers who made donations

Based in Northern Ireland, the patented SENSTEC Anti-Slip Shower Trays have been designed to deliver superior grip which greatly reduces the risk of slipping in the shower.
They also made me a special lightweight sample shower tray so that I could carry it up the mountain to make a video about slippery surfaces and angles
